    I thought this salad was very good although I ended up with way too much dressing. I added more pasta - all in all about 8 oz. which made it much better.  -  30 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I love this salad! I have made it several times and each time everybody likes it. I always have to give them the recipe. Thanks for the great salad recipe.  -  29 Jul 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I found this to be much too salty. It could also use some yellow peppers for color and to add to texture and reduce the saltiness in every bite.  -  25 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
